This recipe was born out of my intense love for all things Italian. Remember my copycat recipe for Johnny Carino’s Angel Hair with Artichokes, or my light but intensely-flavored Spaghetti Aglio, Olio, e Peperoncino, or my Canned Roasted Garlic Marinara Sauce? Then you’ll understand why the need to also make this lemon asparagus fettucine pasta dish!
